. we get all of the internal back and forth and explanation. i will say this is what is difference. cbs on the ground originally said the story didn't add up cnn got the journal and lambasted by the secretary of state's staffer for putting it forward and said it was news worthy and not personal. they took on every news agency including us on this story and now all guns including the state department pointed in the administration. >> gretchen: because the way the state department answered this question yesterday: do you agree with the white house on the conclusion that the attack was sparked by the video instead of a planned terrorist attack and the state department said you would have to ask others. that was not our conclusion. >> steve: they have got themselves a scandal with a month before the election . and we told you yesterday about a actress that appeared. she played dee in clueless. it turns out, she who once upon a time supported barack obama and she now supports mitt romney. >> brian: she had death slams. >> steve: who wound up contacting paul ryan. and then later there was thi
a snap poll in terms of results from tonight's debate. cbs news did a flash poll of uncommitted voters on who they think won tonight's debate. 19% of those voters said the debate was a tie. 31% say that paul ryan won. 50% say that vice president biden won. we're going to be joined in a moment -- we've talked to a couple of people who are functioning as surrogates for the obama campaign tonight. we're going to be speaking with a supporter of ryan and romney in just a moment, congresswoman marsha blackburn in a moment. while we get her to a microphone, i want to get response from you guys to that poll. that comports my feelings about who won the debate. steve, as a republican, does that feel like a reasonable response? >> undecided voters, i certainly think it's in the realm of possibility. you have to look at where all the flash polls are. the thing to remember, just like last week, those undecided voters, they will break to the winner side over the next 48 hours. that lead will spread. if, in fact, there's a 20-point lead off of the flash polls on average with 20% undecided by the time
the victory. according to cbs 51% of uncommitted voters said joe biden won the debate compared with 31% for paul ryan. connell: i was a little surprised but polls can be all over the place. the reason i was surprised -- [talking over each other] connell: i thought he appealed to the choir, people already lights and whereas those who didn't like it would reinforce things they didn't like but the uncommitted in this poll liked him. lou: you raise a very good point. the fact is had joe biden not been so over the top aggressive, disrespectful of the decorum required for that, compare as we did, his performance in 2008 with what he did last night are two different people. he was constrained, respectful, focused in 2008. what we witnessed from this vice president west night is the antithesis of everything that happened in 2008. dagen: you have to be very careful when you are debating a woman because if you have a certain age to you, you look like a chauvinist. it is a rule of politics. you have to be careful. lou: and will back up a little of my chair now. dagen: as a man how you address a w
